England and Saracens Rugby star Ben coaches students

On Thursday, 5 September Ivybridge Community College welcomed England and Saracens rugby star Ben Spencer.  

Ben, who is a former student at the College, delivered a kicking session to selected students from Years 8 to 13.   

Ben spent time giving each individual student specific coaching points, which resulted in noticeable improvements to their techniques.

Head of Rugby at the College, Matt Shepherd said, “It was an excellent opportunity for the students to learn from an England International player, who competes against the very best players week in and week out.  For our students to be able to have the chance to ask Ben questions about ways that they can improve was something that not many would have the chance to do, and the boys made the most of this amazing opportunity.  We hope that in the future we will be able to run a session like this again.”

We are very thankful to Ben for giving up his time and delivering a quality session to our students who have benefited hugely from his input.
